Daniel McLean is an owner’s representative offering construction project management services that help clients maximize the value of their development projects while remaining on schedule and within budget.


What is an owner’s representative?

In construction and real estate development, an owner’s representative is an experienced professional who manages every stage of your project, from design development to pre construction to construction to closing.

Because we are an owner’s representative, we are uniquely situated among others who offer design, project management or construction management services.

The differentiator is that we work closely with the owners team to select engineers, consultants and contractors for the development team – we do not replace what they do, but direct and monitor their work as an advocate for you.

In short, we are a value-added management solution that generates savings equal to or in excess of our fees, who delivers projects on time and within the budget without sacrificing quality expectations.


Our dedicated team is standing by to help.

Daniel McLean has the experience and expertise to manage your project.
